Tourism After a Revolution
Last weekend I went on a fantastic weekend trip to Egypt. It might seem like a strange time to travel to Egypt but my friend Kim had planned the whole trip before the start of the revolution. I put her in touch with my good friend Emily who has lived in Cairo for four years so that she could help her make a decision on whether or not to go. Just days before the trip Emily convinced me that everything was fine for a weekend trip to Egypt so at the last minute I purchased my ticket.
We had such a great trip. Perfect weather, very few tourists, and a weekend packed full of sights and adventures. We couldn’t believe we had even thought to NOT come. Kim and I joked that it seems as though immediately following a revolution is actually the *perfect* time to visit a country.
Here are some photo highlights from the trip as promised.
